Jeff Dunn is an education and technology lover who has worked in far too many industries to count. Okay, like maybe 5 or 6. Jeff can indeed count that high but it's not recommended. Jeff also likes to write bios in the third-person.

Being a proper digitally competent teacher is not as simple as picking up an iPhone and tweeting. You need to be a good digital citizen, understand privacy, and more.

In an effort to clarify and explain some of the most important characteristics that a digitally competent teacher must have, we whipped up this fun visual. It’s designed to make it abundantly clear which skills you should have, who should consider themselves ‘digitally competent’ and more.

We know the audience of Daily Genius is a lot more than just teachers – so we hope you find some value in this graphic even if you’re not a teacher.

After all, being a good digital citizen and understanding privacy (just 2 of the characteristics) are some of the most important things anyone using the Internet should understand.

    Why does this have to be about teachers? Why can’t this be about students too?
